Nice bike! But I'm sure you already know that.

Do you have metal parts leaning against the stucco? Man, I'd never do that! Yeah, I'm anal. I don't mind scratching my bike in a crash or somehow on the trail, but I can rationalize that.

If you look closely the only metal to stucco contact is the very top of the stem ;) He's careful too!

I Used to have one of those

It was a Sweet Ride, and it served me well for anything from fast XC to some real FR.
The coil spring made the bike handle even better, it was more plush and stable on the DH, and it soaked drops with ease.
Proper tuning (4-way coil) also made it just as efficient as the air shock.

As always with the VPP, do not underestimate the importance of having proper SAG, I really think you should try a spring that better suits your weight before you go back to the air shock...

The only problem with my ex-5.5 was that it drove me deeper and deeper to the darker side... :nono:
No worries, replaced it to an Uzzi last year.. There's nothing that bike can't handle :thumbsup:

.. Ride HARD !
